The Bored Ape Yacht Club was founded by four friends who wanted to see if they could "make some cool apes, test our skills and see what we can build," according to their website.
The collection has attracted around 11,000 different owners and the price of an ape on average is 84 ether (approximately $344,000).
But the trend isn't just for individuals. BAYC has secured partnerships with brands like Adidas, so it's popularity is rising.In September, Adidas acquired one for around $156,000.
